6:16 am
lights at night, it would save you money. a this morning is warning it might have to pay a lot of money. irish taxes as the argument over the irish tax plan heats up. apple sells a lot of products overseas. money goes into apple's irish division because ireland has a lower tax rate than the united states. but it isn't the u.s. that's fussing this morning. it's europe. the problem is the tax ireland charges apple is lower not just in what america charges, it's lower than what europe charges and that's got europe calling shenanigans on the irish loophole. apple may have to pay a material amount more to ireland. when companies use the word material, they mean a lot. now as tim cook told the u.s. senate back in 2013 apple wants to bring this money back to the united states, but we have a much, much higher corporate tax rate. apple already pays washington about $16 million every single
6:17 am
day. >> no kidding. >> in taxes. >> that much money. >> that much money. >> look at how much they make. that's amazing. >> there is that. >> yeah, plus lowering the corporate tax rate so crucially many people would argue is a great point. >> bring it back to american shores. absolutely. happening now, look at this. visitors to hawaii's big island are witnessing this incredible site for the first time in a century. a lava lake at kilauea volcano is bubbling over. the volcano itself has been slowly erupting for the past 30 years. now thousands of people are making the trek to the crater overnight just to check that out. isn't that amazing to see? from a distance. >> it is quite a sight. we know a lot of people that were in hawaii fairly recently including our anthony slaughter. i'm not sure. i don't know if he got a look at local volcanos. >> he was too busy buying macadamia nuts. >> you were in hawaii. >> you have to go back a few months. you have to get a vacation in
6:18 am
every now again. everybody goes to hawaii on the west coast. >> it's the best coast. it's the hot one today. >> it's going to be nice if you're headed out to the beach. yeah. it's going to be nice and warm. 70s and 80s. inland today, 80s and 90s. it's going to be hot like lava. okay. not that hot. but you know, got to throw a little humor in there. hope you're off to a good start this morning. clear skies. you know what brings out the best in folks? today on your way out hold the door for somebody or just help somebody across the street. come on. do a little bit of good, right? let's talk about the temperatures as you wake up this morning. 40s an 50s out there. clear skies. as we head throughout the afternoon, warm. remember to dress in light-colored clothing, loose-fitted clothing because by noon today, 80 grease. peninsula, same deal. san francisco, 75 by noon. 83 for the tri-valley. 82 for the north bay. those are your noon temperatures. by afternoon, 90 for the north bay. 81 for san francisco. and 89 for the south bay. so, yep, i going to be hot.
6:19 am
spf, remember to drink plenty of water if you're outside. especially if you're a construction worker, you have to work you side for a long period of time. 79 degrees for pacifica today. half-moon bay, up to 80 later on this afternoon. full sunshine. santa cruz, warmest beaches today. 83 degrees. of course it would be nice to come on a saturday or sunday. then we could all enjoy it, right? hey, if you've got a long lunch break head down to santa cruz and enjoy the warm temperatures. it's going to be warm wherever you go because we've got the offshore winds. we talk about the fire danger increasing around this time of year because we start to dry out. we lose a lot of moisture. we basically happens you get sun, it heats the earth. and because you have mountains and valleys in the bay area winds that move down the mountain, warm as they descend, so as they descend they warm up and fresh and excites the air particles and start the move more than they would in cold air and that warms the surrounding air. that is going to explain how we're going to be warm today at temperatures again near
6:20 am
record-setting territory. as we move through the day tomorrow, the air particles are not so excited. cooler weather starts to move back in. by saturday and sunday, really cool. 70s for the inland valleys and 60s at the coastline. a little bit of something for everybody. of course though the particles not going to be as excited this week. mike, how is the road looking in. >> i like that. over here what we just have your typical drive westbound 580 but debris reported that might hold some folks up in the altamont. let's move the map. hayward as well as the tri-valley. those are both showing the build southbound. no major issues again. 880 did show a crash pop up at southbound 880. maybe slowing for spectators. all four vehicles are over on the shoulder. as we looking south bay. seeing the northbound route starting to slow a bit. this is the commute kicking in in earnest 101 and 87 coming up toward 280. standard here as well. north of 92 with no drama, no
6:21 am
big issues. warehouse fire we've been talking about. 89th and g. local traffic possibly effected there. we'll look a 880 past the coliseum. smooth drive on our live camera. just haze. light volume of traffic. on the other side of the bay, palo alto, smooth flow of traffic. easy drive. looks about the same. just have different trees. in the north bay, 101 moves smoothly. southbound not so much of a build. this is san rafael. good sun rise. no delays novato down to the golden gate bridge. back to you. 6:21. still ahead, something that the warriors proposed arena could be down right dangerous. new concerns about congestion right in front of a busy san francisco hospital.

6:25 am
warriors games for the new arena here at third and 16th. factor in it's across the street from the new ucsf medical center mission bay and children's hospital which does have emergency services. so this one opposing group is mission bay alliance. they say the arena will interrupt traffic and ambulances that would need to get to the hospital. they said they will take this battle to the court or to the ballot box. a response rereleased, in part saying, there are 17 locations around the country where hospitals are located within one mile of an arena. i don't think it's an issue. >> they haven't been truthful or straightforward in letting the public know what impact the r arena will have. >> as for ucsf which sun related to mission bay alliance, it said it is definitely focused on traffic but is, quote, encouraged by the city's efforts. also saying this is a unique project. $1 billion project.
6:26 am
the only one in the country completely privately financed. the hope is the men momentum continues as the warriors momentum continues in the playoffs. some of the players tried to make their best -- light of the situation. >> jones approach to the plate with carol delivering. jones will whack the son of a gun to center field. that's very deep. it's deep. and it's off the base of the wall. >> yep. >> a little bit like they're playing out there on the lane. got to keep that voice hush because of the quiet stadium and empty stands orioles broadcaster gary thorn used his best golf voice for one inning. in golf obviously you've got to be quiet. >> exactly. during the came orioles catcher signed autographs, high fived imaginary fans before tipping his cap and taking a bow to the
